YOUNGSTERS with a love of wildlife can become nature hunters at a Somerset rescue centre this month.

They will be able to bring in feathers and other natural treasures they have found for identification at Secret World Wildlife Rescue centre in East Huntspill and get to see birds of prey such as a buzzard, kestrel and European tawny and barn owls.

There will also be a tracks and facts tent where children can try to identify a variety of wildlife items.

The nature’s hunters open days will be held over the August Bank Holiday weekend from 10am-4pm. Admittance is free and donations will be welcome as will tins of cat food to help feed Secret World’s growing family of orphaned hedgehogs, foxes and badgers.
